For example, let's assume you sign into FinancialSpreads and the live quote is:

  Hammerson Rolling Cash Sell

686.0
Buy

687.5


This is an example of how it works.

MarketHammerson Rolling Cash
The Spread686.0p - 687.5p
How This WorksYou can trade on the Hammerson Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Higher than 687.5p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 686.0p

This is a 'Rolling' trade and so there is no expiry date for this trade. If you decide not to close your trade and the session ends then your trade will roll over to the next trading day.

Note: if a trade rolls over then you will normally either receive or be charged a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to fall or rise. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Betting.

  Spread Betting Higher than 687.5p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 686.0p?

Let's Assume You Want to Buy   Spread Betting Higher than 687.5p
You Choose How Much to Risk, Let's Say You Opt For £10 per penny
So What Now?
  • You win £10 for every penny Hammerson pushes above 687.5p
  • You will lose £10 for each penny Hammerson pushes below 687.5p
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Increase Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 1
Hammerson pushes higher and the spread trading market is revised to 706.8p - 708.3p. So you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   706.8   708.3
Take a Profit? You could decide to keep your spread bet open or close it and take your profit. For this example, you opt to close your trade and sell at 706.8p.
Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(706.8p - 687.5p) x £10 per penny
19.3p x £10 per penny
Your P/L = £193.00 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Hammerson moves lower and the market becomes 670.3p - 671.8p. Therefore Financial Spreads would show:   670.3   671.8
Time to Limit Your Loss? At this point, you could opt to keep your position open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to limit your losses. In this example you opt to settle your position by selling at 670.3p.
Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(670.3p - 687.5p) x £10 per penny
-17.2p x £10 per penny
Your P/L = -£172.00 loss
